Looking good, Hank.

Are Westfield's popular on your side of the pond ?

Westfields are rare compared to the rest of the Lotus 7 clones. I think I'm the fifth Megabusa in the United States. =)

Heres the build diary of my R1 engined MNR Vortx with Inboard Suspension. One of the rarer marques out there in the kit car world but might be of interest to some of you.

Hi Dave, im good thanks how about yourself. Always used PH for the news but thought it may be good to check a performance forum that is broader than the usual 7 based stuff.
Cars alive but undriveable currently which is annoying as i really fancied a quick christmas day blat. The whole front suspension is loose and awaiting adjustment after the new front pushrods came but i've been really slow getting back onto it after the rain called the first attempt off. Hopefully it will see some track action after the setup is roughly there, new pads(mintex) to replace the wilwood smart pads, dyno session and some front wheel arch fettling.

My MNR Vortx build blog. Not a lot of detail...
http://timsmnr.blogspot.com/
I thought it was worth updating the description of my blog... as well as my MNR (part)build, the blog now covers my spell of Striker ownership, my recent exploits in a Locost racecar and will soon cover my RGB racecar build. Addiction obviously.

Hi all, here's my SDR V-Storm WR3 (Subaru Turbo variant)build blog

scoobystorm@tumblr.com

Sorry you'll have to cut and paste I can't get it to work as a link

I try to keep it not too technical and light hearted though informative, by all means if anyone requires further detail or clarity post a message or question on the blog and I'll do my best to answer it.

You could check out www.kit-car-builds.socialgo.com its an online community of kit car builders, forum etc, but the most interesting section i've found is the magazine.

When members post blogs about their builds it's published in the Online Magazine so it makes for an interesting and ever changing read. Each kit car tends to stick to its own forum, and therefore ideas and technology don't get easily translated to other models. With this arrangement you can share things across multiple kit car platforms. Which i have personally found very useful.
